We had a multidimesional cube built using SSAS 2008. What are the possible way to allow users to analyze the data in the cube in an easy way?
Is SharePoint or Excel an option? What else?
Please share why you prefer one option over the other out of your experience.

Excel 2007 and up is your best option.  No deployment, easy connection, most everyone has it and know how to use.

Are there any add-ons required on Excel to be able to access the SSAS cube?
